The Sounds of Silence:

Solutions for Instrumental Engagement Online

with Shelly Suminski Mahpar

"Okay, everybody on mute? One…two…three…and!”

Silence - a sound we have all become more familiar with lately. So many teachers are still looking for the best strategies to run a meaningful band, orchestra, choir, or music course in the age of the video conference classroom. Without access to synchronous music-making over the internet, what are some ways we can engage our instrumental students? We’ll look at the structure of different possible online class experiences, including asynchronous classes, synchronous teaching models and ensemble engagement.

Music Theory With A Twist

with Dr. Kathy Hickey

It takes the right strategies to sequence and scaffold a semester course on music fundamentals, whether you’re teaching beginners or advanced students. And now, in a surprise twist, you might need to do it online! In this seminar you will learn how to apply the Kodály sequence for teaching online music theory to your high school AP Music Theory course or your college Fundamentals course. Dr. Kathy Hickey has lots of materials to share!

Listen Louder Than You Sing

with Dr. Kathy Hickey

How can we teach students to “listen loudly” over the internet? Join KASC for a seminar on applying listening elements from the Kodály Approach on Zoom. Get students using their fingers to identify different themes in the music, using softly-sung solfa to derive the melody, and identifying meter/chords/etc in a variety of music.

Virtual Katinka Day

Hosted by the Kodály Association of Southern California

Come join us at the 2020 Katinka Day celebration, brought to you in a way Katinka Dániel could never have imagined - over Zoom! We’ll share the history of Katinka’s life and work, KASC stories from years gone by, memories, performances, and the pleasure of each other’s company. Now more than ever, we must gather and celebrate music’s power to “one day heal mankind.”
